Help Cast the Cereal Mascot Movies

It's official, we have run out of original movie ideas. "Inception" might have been the last original idea ever (or was it, there is some debate).

When we are making movie adaptations of The Smurfs and Marmaduke, we have run out of comic strips and 80s cartoons to adapt. Now, the big movies to be attached to are based on board games. Seriously. Movie adaptations of Monopoly, Battleship, Clue, Risk, Candy Land, Ouija board, and Monsterpocalypse are all in development with big names attached including Tim Burton, Ridley Scott, and Peter Berg.

So what's next? After we milk the board games for all they're worth, where do we turn? 1 suggestion: movies based on cereal mascots. There are tons of them, have a connection with people from several generations, and have built in product placement.

But who should play these iconic characters (and no, Johnny Depp can't do them all. He's running out of funny voices to use)? Let's see if we can cast these roles. Read the list of cereal mascots below, and let me know who should be cast in these roles in the comments section. We will follow up on this project later.

  • Cap'n Crunch

  • Count Chocula (also, Boo Berry)

  • Lucky

  • Trix rabbit

  • Snap, Crackle, Pop

  • Sonny the Cuckoo bird

  • Tony the tiger

  • Honey Nut Cheerios Bee

  • Wendell (Cinnamon Toast Crunch)

  • Toucan Sam

I suggest either Seth Green or Giovanni Ribisi for that last one since they both already have experience in the role:
